Civil Engineering was one of the founding degrees at Queen's, making it one of the oldest in the UK and Ireland. Staff lead high-quality research and are recognised for their excellence in teaching.
It is a broad discipline that deals with the very infrastructure of society from our bridges to our water and energy resources, and our roads. Our degree programmes are concerned with the planning, design, construction, sustainability, management and maintenance of this infrastructure. Fields of activity include structures, transportation, foundations and water engineering.
You will have the opportunity to tailor your studies according to your skills and interest after a common first year with our three complementary pathway programmes:
• Civil Engineering • Structural Engineering with Architecture • Environmental and Civil Engineering.
However, you choose to specialise, you’ll be tackling some of the biggest challenges of the modern world, such as achieving sustainable living in an increasingly urbanised society. As the demands on resources like water, energy and land increase, there is a strong need for qualified Civil Engineers with the relevant technical skills but who also possess an ethical awareness of the environmental impact of the projects they undertake.
The programme aims to produce engineering graduates equipped for professional roles in industry, the professions and public service. The programme meets the requirements of the Engineering Council's UK-SPEC for BEng degrees and the QAA Engineering Benchmark Statement as part of the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status.

This degree is designed to provide students with a good basis for a professional career as a chartered Civil Engineer. Emphasis is placed on the practical application of theory through design and laboratory work. The degrees contain an element of choice, but all students are required to take courses which will equip them with the technical, management and professional skills needed for a career in civil engineering.
